It certainly looks tasty and the bright colours are a great talking point.

The chef explained: “St. Patrick’s Day is a whirlwind of corned beef, rainbows, green food, and Guinness. This recipe is no exception from that list, with a green spinach pizza crust, topped with green basil pesto, mozzarella and goat cheese, followed by green and yellow bell peppers cut to look like four-leaf clovers. I actually tried to find green cheese but decided the white was a nice contrast for the appeal factor.”

Here is a list of the ingredients you will need, and the method to re-create the Leprechaun Pizza yourself.

Ingredients:
1/2 recipe Spinach Pizza Dough, risen
1/4 cup basil pesto
1 cup shredded Mozzarella
4 oz. (1/2 cup) crumbled goat cheese
1 green and 1 yellow 4-section bell peppers, sliced into rounds 1/4-inch thick

Method:
Roll out dough into large circle and sprinkle with cornmeal.
Spread pesto over the dough, and top with Mozzarella, goat cheese and bell pepper slices.
Place on pizza stone or baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until it the crust turns golden and the cheese starts to bubble.
